    An unenforceable rule might as well not exist.

    And even in the few circumstances where the NCAA *could* enforce things, they're very hesitant to do so because of the asskickings they've been getting in court lately.

    The current situation is untenable and will eventually have to be reconciled somehow, but the NCAA needed to be dumpstered/reformed a long time ago so this choppy period is just what we have to deal until some type of collective bargain is struck and an organization emerges that strikes a balance between the interest of the participants, schools, fans, and governing body.

    Precisely the reasoning behind my post about leaving the NCAA. I did read that they could potentially levy fines against schools and possibly forcing disassociation with boosters in violation. It would likely be a slap on the wrist but would be interesting to see if schools would file suit against the NCAA since most of them, along with the conference commissioners, are actually in favor of tighter regulations/enforcement.

    Most schools want tighter rules, but most BIG schools want tighter rules that they can break without it costing so much while still handicapping smaller schools.

    The four proposals under consideration:
    1) Prohibiting consecutive timeouts (ie icing kicks)
    2) No untimed down at end of 1Q/3Q
    3) Clock runs after 1st downs except inside of 2 mins in a half
    4) Clocks runs on incompletions once ball is spotted

    These proposals are emanating from a working group commissioned by the College Football Officials Board of Managers, made up of 12 FBS/FCS commissioners.

    This has been a culmination of 3-4 years of exploration work by the NCAA FB Playing Rules Committee.

    The proposals from the CFO working group could soon turn into recommendations from NCAA FB Rules Committee at a meeting in 2 weeks.

    Recommendations will be socialized and potentially approved by leaders in March and/or April and implemented this season.

    A sidebar to all of this is an on-going conversation among college football leaders to move to an NFL-like coaches challenge system for replay reviews.

    Last year, an FBS game averaged 2.3 replay stoppages - a figure that continues to rise.

    That average replay stoppage seems really low. Feel like we are seeing at least 5-6 reviews a game.

    I like this rule and I hope it makes its way to the NFL.

    I'd also like to see the NBA adopt something similar.

    In fact, I'd like to see the same standard applied to when the ball goes out of bounds.

    They also need to fix the review process. It's beyond stupid it takes 5+ minutes to determine if someone was in bounds or not.

    Unlike the MLB rule changes, which decrease the dead time in the game, these rules simply decrease the live ball time. The ball was already only in play for like 15 minutes out of a 3-4 hour game; that will go down further with this.

    From what I read, it's fewer plays = fewer injuries

    Fixing the review system would shave 10-15 minutes off (I know it’s probably not that much but certainly feels like it).

    Absolutely - that would be a much better rule change.

    American football it virtually unwatchable live to me, so anything that speeds things up helps IMO.
